Reply to "The Civil Rights Movement is dead and the Hip-Hop Gen X'ers, need a reason."

We forget that after the original activists in the Civil rights movement paved the way for Black, AND ALL the other minorities in this country, women, the poor, etc., --all of the people that the civil rights leaders paved the way for in this country just strolled or raced down the newly paved road of civil rights and justice without looking back.

Oh, they looked back alright. They looked back to laugh, "whatcha still doin down there?" Why are you still oppressed in the land of opportunity?"

Everyone took advantage of the doors opened by the civil rights movement in instant and self-serving ways.

EVERYONE. And, I am horrified and amazed at the level of ignorance and self-righteous of many of these young immigrant children (17-30 year olds) who I often hear say how they are against Affirmative Action, and ask me what is wrong with Black Americans. I think I mentioned that I teach public speaking and so many of these youngsters who are 2nd generation to this country, almost always want to do a persuasive speech on why Affirmative Action is a bad thing!
I'm like, do they teach these folk about this on the flight/boat over here?

Once someone else paved the way for so many, the many had no intentions of looking out for anyone else other than themselves the same way they had been looked out for.

The civil rights movement opened up opportunities and caused positive changes in this country for all of America's oppressed groups in housing, employment, entertainment, sports, immigration, education, women's rights, gay rights, and on and on; but, after after African Americans primarily, along with others in this country who truely believed in equality and justice FOR ALL suffered imprisonment, beating, humiliations, torture and death to bring it about, it is primarily the African Americans that still suffer the most oppression in this country, however, now with the help of the people who have benefitted from their efforst and suffering: women (whom often are racist against blacks as some men are sexist against women)

I have worked/am working with these incredibly self-rightous White women and I am the only one in my office to have a Phd; and invariably, whenever they learn of this, they go, oh so that's how you got this job! While many of them have 'life training' or M.A.'s degrees only. I'm like, how did you get hired, and, the implication here, is that they would be more qualified over me if they had only high school diplomas, get it?

Minorities (immigrants?) that are in the this country now by the millions, who before the civil rights movement brought about change in discrimination in all areas, including immigration and naturalization, now it is other minorities and new immigrants to this country that eagarly jump on the white racist's bandwagon as well.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! You said it! It is just amazing at the load of crap that I hear coming from many of these folk. broscream fool
